Align launches new Invisalign Go plus to help GDPs treat a broader range of patients
Align Technology has today (1st July) launched the latest addition to its Invisalign Go system, available to general practitioners in the EMEA region. The new Invisalign Go Plus system enables general dental practitioners to treat a broader range of orthodontic indications.
The Invisalign Go Plus system is designed specifically for general dentists. It enables doctors to treat mild to moderate types of malocclusions and can easily be integrated in a wide range of restorative treatments in a dental practice. It offers a 26-stage treatment option to correct anterior teeth up to, and including, the first molar, over a period of 6- to 12-months, for an improved arch formation.
Dr Affan Saghir, who has been part of a preliminary initiative treating patients with the Invisalign Go Plus system, commented: “I have many patients who ask for clear aligner-based orthodontics. After providing them with a detailed understanding of possible options and orthodontic aims, many opt for anterior alignment orthodontics, for which I recommend the Invisalign Go system.
“The addition of the new Invisalign Go Plus system to my surgery will provide a greater clinical scope of practice and, in particular, assist with those cases requiring movement of the first permanent molars.”
The Invisalign system is the world’s most advanced clear aligner system, which uses leading smart technology, developed by Align.
A spokesperson explained: “All clear aligners are not alike. only Invisalign aligners are made from SmartTrack material and include SmartForce features, which allow for more predictable tooth movement.
“The combination of SmartTrack material and SmartForce features are clinically proven to improve control of tooth movement, allowing a greater than 75% improvement in tooth movement predictability. This is unmatched by any other clear aligner system made from off-the-shelf single layer material and enables exceptional, predictable results.”
The spokesperson added: “Align has also developed a seamless digital workflow system for Invisalign doctors, which allows simple end-to-end case management. This starts with ways to help engage with and identify the patients who may benefit from teeth alignment using clear aligners via SmileView simulation app, and Invisalign Photo Uploader app for case assessment.
“Diagnosis and treatment planning are also digitised, using the iTero digital intraoral scanning system and ClinCheck 3D treatment planning software, which now includes new In-Face Visualisation functionality, allowing treatment plans to incorporate an image of the patient’s face. The case is then tracked from start to finish using the Appointment Planner and iTero Progress Assessment tools.
“As the market pioneer in digital orthodontics, Align Technology is driving innovations and partnering with general dental practitioners to help them thrive. Over the past years, the dental sector has been changing rapidly and while, on average, oral health is improving, the request for aesthetic treatments is growing.
“Within this evolving scenario, Align offers an advanced clear aligner system to allow dentists to complete a wide variety of comprehensive dentistry procedures, tailored to their skillset as they grow in proficiency and confidence.
“Importantly, dentists can be confident that they are using the right treatment for their patients because the company offers not only the world’s most advanced clear aligners and digital workflow systems, but also education and business support to empower them to maximise their clinical and practice development.”
